Educational Leadership (M.Ed.)

Available: Macon

The educational leadership program develops advanced practitioners to become mentors and advisors to beginning educators, innovative leaders in their schools and communities and architects of change in the systems that govern local, state, and national education.  The master of education degree supports this philosophy by providing the practitioner with the tools to construct a knowledge base in current educational trends and innovative curricular designs which will build the foundation for innovative leadership resulting in successful student performance.  The content field coursework specific to Leadership is taken as part of a cohort.  The coursework is configured to meet on Saturdays supplemented by on-line assignments and study.  Students already holding T5 level certification in a Georgia teaching field may elect to add certification in Leadership by completing the Content Field, Internship and Capstone courses only.

School Improvement Core classes for the M.Ed. are taken separately from the Leadership cohort.  Students may take these courses before, during, or after the Leadership cohort.
